My place is a cozy flat in an old brick building, literally around the corner from Bow Station. Located in a quiet street, the flat is really convenient and well connected. 2 minutes walk to Bow station, 15 to Mile End and 20 minutes to Victoria Park.
I travel quite a lot for work, so I rent my room when I´m away. My flatmate is very relaxed an easy going, he owns a bakery so he might even give you cake :)
